Anxiety Treatment

Anxiety disorders occur frequently in all age groups, but teenagers and young adults are especially prone to the condition. The National Institute of Health notes that as many as 1 in 3 teenagers from ages 13 to 18 will experience an anxiety disorder.

Depression Treatment

Adolescence is an emotional rollercoaster for many, during which teens and young adults experience dramatic shifts in their moods. While this turbulent period of development is known for difficult emotions, persistent or extreme negative feelings should not be accepted as “par for the course.

Personality Disorders

There are several different types of personality disorders, each of which include specific symptoms. Personalities are, by nature, highly variable. Despite the oxymoron, it’s normal to be different – most people possess some unique quality or quirk, and there are many factors that contribute to developing a teen’s personality into something individual.

“We lost one of our sons to suicide, which nearly destroyed his twin brother and our family. The loving and knowledgeable staff took in our shattered son and began the process of helping him want to live again. [They] extended the same love, support and education to our family, and we are now finally moving forward with hope. There is no doubt that Paradigm saved our son and our family.” – Bob Walden, Trust Pilot Review

Details for each of these measures are found below. These findings are at the alpha .01 level, meaning that they are considered 99% reliable.
